I have absolutley no intentions on living on the island full time. I'm lucky enough to be able to enjoy the best of both worlds. I can get the heck out of Boston from Novemember 26th through the end of May and return home for summers at Cape Cod. I guess the appropriate term is "snow bird"?

This is why it's frustrating because I'm absolutley not giving up my Mass license.

I did purchase a mailbox in the states so I will maintain a working address here. I really don't know what to do because I'm in an awkward spot.

So island hop a little to San Juan or Virgin Gorda, etc. in the middle of your stay so you aren't here more than three consecutive months if you're concerned about the technicalities.

I don't know the particulars of the law, but many so called snowbirds own property in FL and keep their driver's license from their home state when they maintain residence there. When we moved to FL, one form of establishing residency was by registering to vote, and another was by enrolling children in school. I don't think that having utility or phone bills mattered. If one files taxes in their state of residency and just maintain their FL home as a second home (staying no longer than 6 months) you are just another "snowbird".
